E550S
I'm with you on the bare bones option, it would be a nice way to go to tailor the heli.
Either way I'm pumped and looking forward to getting the new profile carbon lower frames for my existing E550/620.

@ c-heli:

I thought the same thing "just get the lower carbon frames"

but

they might not fit on your existing plastic frame !!!

The new E550S Main Frame Set looks slightly different to the "old e550

frame"

and it has a different part-number, too.

PV0074 instead of PV0558

You also need a new servo tray, a new bottom frame, .............

Still - I like to tune up my old e550 just a little

I see what you mean about the differences.
Well I guess well be finding out soon enough.
Any thoughts on a release date? I'm thinking the fall.

That's the old E550, not the E550S.

I did not realize that the old E550 was still in production but apparently it is.

Looking at the part numbers the kit version would be 4730-K13 or something like that. Is the E550S kit available in Europe?

E550s
Hey guys
I think the new kit version of the e550 will include carbon frames and a 140 degree awash
I guess we will all find out pretty soon, since Hobbico is making an announcement at IRCHA

I went to the Midland Heli store and the Ultra EP E550 combo is $595 shipped.
I think thats a pretty competitive price all things considered.

Well Tower Hobbies has the Raptor E550s listed on its website.
$650 is a pretty competitive price for an ARF heli.
I'm hoping they also release the E550 combo kit as well.

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bi...p?&I=LXCRFJ&P=7

I also took a look at the pics on Crack Roll and the lower carbon frames and baseplate look like they will mount on existing E Raptors upper frames.
Thats encouraging since the design is more forgiving of larger packs.

Here are the pics from CR that give a good view of the new lower frames attaching to the uppers.
As soon as they are available from Tower I'll be ordering them.
